determine the outcome here. barack obama's victory here in north carolina four years ago was the first by a democrat since 1976. it was helped in large part by a huge turnout by african-americans, a whooping 72%, well above the national average. but his win here was his slimmest margin in the country. a mere 14,000 votes. it looks like he'll have to do as well or better among blacks and other voters in this deeply divided state. the task is made harder by the hit north carolina took in the recession. unemployment was 9.7%, fifth highest in the country. the rate for african-americans is nearly double. and the state has seen enormous change. demographically with the reverse migration of blacks returning and an influx of hispanics and other new residents. and economically. u.n.c. professor and long time political reporter says north carolina is moving in two directions at once >> the up escalator in this state is the economic diversification into higher-wage, higher-skill, research and development, biotechnology. the down escalator is the collapse of the traditional industries of textiles

to the other guy. the democrats were in control for four years, two under bush and two under obama, yet it was all bush's fault and nobody takes responsibility. that's the problem. the voters need to take responsibility and get rid of every one of the incumbents, it's maybe not in this election, but if they don't get this country straightened out and get the economy straightened out, but just take one election in two years, if it's not better, get rid of every one of them and they will finally get the message. host: let's look at some national news stories. this story from the new york times -- and this other story in the times -- looking at other international news stories on long lines of what our last caller was talking about, whether international news is getting attention. and this in the washington post -- the debate tomorrow night will focus on domestic issues. what would you be listening for? if you're not going to watch, why? monty writes -- in new orleans on the republican line, eustice. caller: good morning. i don't know how anything can change. romney would have to come up w

, if i were voting, i would vote for obama, and i believe that if obama was from caracas, he would vote for chavez. i am positive. relations between the u.s. and venezuela have been tense in recent years. neither embassy has had an ambassador since 2010. chavez himself is in a tight race for re-election. i'm rooting against him. and voters in venezuela will cast their ballots this coming sunday. >>> up next, republicans have been looking for voter fraud. guess what? they've found it, in their own campaign. after making it difficult for democrats to vote, it's the republicans who are to blame for the biggest case of registration fraud in the country. and that's coming up in a minute. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. >>> well, back to "hardball." republicans have been on the hunt, by the way, some would say witch hunt, to root out voter fraud in 17 states that made it a lot harder for regular people to vote, including pushing unnecessary photo i.d. requirements in pennsylvania. all to ward off what they call voter fraud. that hasn't been proven to exist. they may have f

opportunity. this presidential campaign has been going on for nearly two years and finally it's debate season for the nominees. the time when americans seem to really start paying attention. president obama's rehearsing with senator john kerry and mitt romney is squaring off against senator rob portman. both candidates have challenges and checklists. president obama's working on shorter answers, trying to avoid sounding like the professor he was before the white house. democrats say he needs to look strong and forceful and not appear irritated or impatient. >> they're trying to get him into the mode of being able to answer questions, short, concisely, and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms and his style and the way he comes across as opposed to information in this. >> reporter: and mitt romney? he has to seem relatable, especially after his 47% comment. how can he do that? show compassion? show he's competent and connect with the voters? >> on those three cs that's where he really has got to do well. >> reporter: romney arrived in colorado to continue his debate prep but
